Important information about Bivariate Data

Please label your answers in bold and away from any calculations. Bivariate data obtained for the paired variables and are shown below, in the table labelled "Sample data." These data are plotted in the scatter plot in Figure 1, which also displays the least-squares regression line for the data. The equation for this line is

When we carry out a regression, we assume a direct causal relationship. In a correlation analysis, we don't make such an assumption, but nevertheless determine whether 2 variables are related. Briefly explain how two variables can be correlated without one directly influencing the other (=without causal relationship)
